Our FIRST international guest making his way to our shores is Anton Goodman (Israel) – Anton is the Director of Partnerships at Rabbis for Human Rights, and serves on the board of Oz VeShalom the Orthodox Jewish Peace Movement in Israel. He has worked to promote partnership and equality for Arab citizens of Israel at the Abraham Initiatives; built new initiatives in Diaspora-Israel relations as the Jewish Agency emissary to Washington DC; and designed Israel education programs as the director of the World Bnei Akiva Leadership Institute.

SECONDLY, joining us from across the ditch is Jacob Sacher – Jacob Sacher is a comedian based in Naarm (Melbourne). He has performed his unique brand of Jewish comedy in multiple countries around the world, and is excited to add Aotearoa to the list. Offstage he is a masters by research student in Jewish Cultural Practice (Jewish Comedy) at the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation, and is the Chairperson of the NFP comedy theatre Corner Shop Comedy.

Jacob will be joining us in the Saturday Night Live lineup, Sunday and children’s programme over the LIMMUD NZ weekend.

FINALLY (for now!), we are delighted to announce the arrival of Ben M. Freeman (Scotland) – Founder of the modern Jewish Pride movement, a leader, thinker, and educator, Ben M. Freeman is the author of the seminal Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People and its follow up, Reclaiming our Story: The Pursuit of Jewish Pride. He is currently working on the finale of his Jewish Pride trilogy, The Jews: An Indigenous People.

Educating, inspiring and empowering, his work focuses on Jewish identity and historical and contemporary Jew-hatred. A Holocaust scholar for over fifteen years, Ben came to prominence during the Corbyn Labour Jew-hate crisis in the UK and quickly became one of his generation’s leading Jewish thinkers and voices against Jew-hate.
